Access to Healthcare.
Despite advances in care, many Americans still face significant health barriers. In the last decade, adults became increasingly insured, but many, especially low-income, non-white adults, remain without insurance. Apart from coverage, other barriers to healthcare services—such as appointment availability, out-of-pocket costs for doctor visits and prescriptions, physician availability, office hours, transportation, and language/culture—also more often affect the nation’s most vulnerable populations.
These barriers inhibit the nearly 4 in every 5 adults suffering a chronic condition, as well as the populations unable to afford their necessary prescription medication.
